Missing Deeds 



Found in the Ransom A. Chauncey Papers, Rare Book, Manuscript & Special Collections Library, Duke 
University, Durham, NC. These deeds were recorded in the missing Pitt County Deed Book A. Since these deeds 
were later copies it is evident that the Register was not familiar with the old writing style and could not understand 
certain letters and words. Contributed by Roger Kammerer.

Cohabitation Records, 1866 



Part 3 

(continued from previous issue) 

In the March 1866 session of the North Carolina General Assembly, an Act was passed concerning negroes and 
persons of color. Justices of the Peace were to collect and record in the County Clerk's office, a record of the 
cohabitation of former slaves to ratify their state of marriage. The Court clerk was required to maintain a record 
book for this purpose and to receive 25 cents per entry for this service. In Section 6, Chapter 40 of the Act, it was a 
misdemeanor if negroes did not record their marriage by Sept. 1, 1866. This section of the Act was amended by 
Section 1, Chapter 70 (ratified March 1867), to extend the time of recording these marriages to Jan. 1, 1868.

Cohabitation Records, 1866 



Part 4 

(continued from previous issue) 

In the March 1866 session of the North Carolina General Assembly, an Act was passed concerning negroes and 
persons of color. Justices of the Peace were to collect and record in the County Clerk's office, a record of the 
cohabitation of former slaves to ratify their state of marriage. The Court clerk was required to maintain a record 
book for this purpose and to receive 25 cents per entry for this service. In Section 6, Chapter 40 of the Act, it was a 
misdemeanor if negroes did not record their marriage by Sept. 1, 1866. This section of the Act was amended by 
Section 1, Chapter 70 (ratified March 1867), to extend the time of recording these marriages to Jan. 1, 1868.

In Memory of Frank M. Clark 

1934-2005 

The Pitt County Family Researchers has lost a dear friend and supporter with the passing 
of Frank Milton Clark, our Vice-President, who died on Aug. 11, 2005, in Greenville, North 
Carolina. Frank was always full of fun, loved to joke and loved the company of those who would 
joke with him. He belonged to many organizations and was always in a hurry trying to get to one 
meeting or another. He seemed to always be receiving awards and the members of the board of 
PCFR would continually tease him for being on the local news. He was an avid family historian 
and would help anyone he could track their family genealogy. Frank was very proud of his 
twenty-three years of service as the family historian and national coordinator on the executive 
board of the Clark-Rodan Family Reunion. Thankfully, Frank contributed much of his research 
on his family to the new Chronicles of Pitt County, Vol. II. According to his own biography 
Frank Milton Clark was born in 1934 in Greene Co., North Carolina, fifth of the six children'of 
Warren H. Clark (1874-1945) and his second wife, Etta Ellis Clark. Warren had married first to 
Alice Rodan, by whom he had twenty children. Frank served in the army in the Korean War and 
later lived in New Jersey where he worked for the State. After receiving numerous awards, he 
retired after 33 years of service and relocated to Greenville, North Carolina, in 1989. 

Besides his work with the Clark-Rodan Family Reunion, he was a member of VFW Post 
7032, an adjutant historian of American Legion Post 39, Vice-President of the Pitt County 
Veteran's Council, member of the Pitt County Fair Board, and was an active member of Mt 
Calvary Free Will Baptist Church in Greenville, NC. Frank had a daughter who predeceased him 
He is survived at his death by a brother, Henry Clark, and sisters: Lessie Edwards of 
Walstonburg, North Carolina; Susie D. Vines of Winterville, North Carolina; Marie Wallace of 
Gnfton, North Carolina; and Louise Williams of Snow Hill, North Carolina. He leaves a wide 
circle of relatives and friends. He was buried at Homestead Memorial Gardens in Greenville, North 
Carolina. His friends will miss him, but will never forget his smile.

Records, 1830-1833 

Part 2 

These are abstracts from the church minutes found on microfilm, MF 3 1.1; East Carolina Manuscript Collection, J. 
Y. Joyner Library, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC. These records are continued from PCGQ, May 2005. 
Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

Conference, 2nd Sat, in January 1830- Jesse MOORE, moderator. Report on Benjamin BELL being accused by 
brother James SHEPHERD. SHEPHERD said he was not at all the quarrel, but saw BELL fight Mr EVANS and 
appeared ready to fight as much as Mr. EVANS. SHEPHERD did not recollect if BELL had too much ardent 
spirits, but had seen him at other times when he thought he was. SHEPHERD was asked if he thought BELL'S 
moral character and walk was such that he would be satisfied if he was in church with him. SHEPHERD said that at 
the combat and several times previous to that his feelings were much injured and hurt by BELL'S conduct, so much 
that he could not reconcile being in the same church with him. But since the fight he could fellowship with BELL. 
BELL came forth and acknowledged he had transgressed and had sorely grieved for the same and hoped the church 
would forgive him. Brother BELL continued in fellowship with the church. James ALBRITTON informed the 
church that on Jan. 1, 1830, he drank too much ardent spirits and was drunk. He was much wounded by his actions 
and hoped the church would forgive him. Church nearly unanimously agreed to keep him in fellowship. Rachel 
HARRIS asks for Letters of Dismission. It was agreed that Jacob D. HARRINGTON have leave to exercise his 
ministerial gifts in the adjoining churches. Tom BOSTON made application for liberty to preach which was laid 
over to next conference. Brothers Josiah DANIEL, Robert F. LANIER and Benjamin F. EBORN appointed a 
committee to inquire among the colored members as to BOSTON'S moral character and make report. Adjourned 
with singing. 

Conference, 2nd Sat, in February 1830- Elder William HYMAN, moderator. Elizabeth COOPER, Abigail 
PEARCE, Nancy BARROW, Nelly ROSS and colored members Tom ORMOND, Fanny and Hannah had been 
absent 3 conferences. Brother COOPER and Brother PEARCE gave excuses and sister Martha ALBRITTON gave 
excuse for Sister Nancy BARROW. The case of Tom BOSTON taken up. The report says his walk since his 
profession of Christianity has been sensorable. but his walk of late was better than formerly. The church decided he 
did not have leave to preach. Brother Obediah MOORE informed the Conference that John S. DANIEL had 
trespassed on his feelings and he had lost fellowship for him. The charge that John S. DANIEL had removed or 
taken a house out of his possession without his consent. Howell WHITEHEAD, Benjamin F. EBORN, Lewis 
SPEIR and Beazer BARROW appointed a committee to examine the trespass. Elder CLARK charged John 
KINSAUL with using profane language. Brother PERRY related that he heard KINSAUL say that Brother PEARCE 
"was a damn raskel & a dam Liar." Also heard by Howell WHITEHEAD. John KINSAUL was excommunicated 
from fellowship with the church. William PERRY asks for Letters of Dismission. Adjourned with singing. 

2nd Sunday in February 1830- Met at VAN NORDEN'S mill. Cesar, belonging to V. JORDAN, Esq. and Mahala, 
K ° f B ' F ' EBORN ba P tized - Afterwards went to the meeting house. Sermons given by Elders HYMAN and 
MASON. Absent colored members called and gave satisfactory excuses. 

g^^^jBj Sat - in Mareh William CLARK, moderator. The case of Obediah MOORE against John S 

DANIEL. The facts are that MOORE'S christian feelings were hurt when DANIEL took a certain house that 
MOORE considered m his possession. MOORE in the first instance gave his consent for said DANIEL to take the 
ft S xS^ IEL h3Ving t0,d MOORE that he had bou ght the house and that it was on his risk). Some 2 or 3 weeks 
alter MOORE told DANIEL not to take the house away for he had understood that he had not bought it The 
Committee says that DANIEL carried or had carried the house away after it had been pulled down by some other 
persons. DANIEL says he had bought the house as he told MOORE, and there was no evidence to show he had not 
The Committee says that after Daniel heard that MOORE'S feelings were hurt he wanted to meet with him on the 
subject DANIEL took one of the church brothers twice to see MOORE, but both attempts failed to produce a 
reconciliation. No evidence that MOORE had ever been to see DANIEL to talk about the subject. Two Brothers 
heard MOORE say he would never forgive DANIEL. When the Committee visited MOORE, he left them before 



PCGQ August 2005 6 



they had got through with the business and said to them as he walked off "Goodby. I shall not be at the next 
meeting do as you please." The Committee's opinion was that the trespass was a private one and MOORE carried it 
into the church contrary to church decorum. DANIEL was to talk to MOORE and make amends and MOORE 
continues to be unforgiving and unchristian like in disposition towards DANIEL. The Committee recommends 
excommunication of MOORE from fellowship which was given. William CLARK says there is a report that Jim, 
belonging to William JONES, is the father of a white womans child in Jim's neighborhood. Lewis SPEIR, John 
BUGH, Lastly DUDLEY and James ALBRITTON appointed a committee to check out this report. Committee to

to W. JONES put off till next conference. 

Conference, 2nd Sat, in May 1830- Jesse MOORE, moderator. Ordered Benjamin BELL and Ezekial LANGLEY 
be called to next conference for nonattendance. The Committee report on Tom BOSTON says that all the colored 
members, except one, say he never trespassed on their christian feelings to not talk to him. The one that did say, it 
was predicated on a report which he had no knowledge of himself. Tom satisfied him on the subject. The case of 
Jim, belonging to William JONES, the Committee went and saw Sally MCDUEL (mother of the child) and she 
said it was Jim's if it was black and would swear it was Jim's. Jim said he was not guilty and denied the charge. 
The Committee said the child is black and charge Jim by the evidence. The church in conference DO NOT concur 
with the Committee that Jim is guilty. The woman is of a debased character and her word should not be taken 
against a member, to the excluding of him from the church. Jim was released from the charge. Lanier DANIEL then 
charged Jim, property of William JONES, with being a common liar and absenting himself from said JONES' 
service without provocation. Lastly DUDLEY said Jim had told him a lie. Jim being present called to make defense 
but failed to make satisfactory excuse. Trial was given on his fellowship and Jim was excommunicated Marv

Cohabitation Records, 1 866 



Part 5 

(continued from previous issue) 

In the March 1866 session of the North Carolina General Assembly, an Act was passed concerning negroes and 
persons of color. Justices of the Peace were to collect and record in the County Clerk's office, a record of the 
cohabitation of former slaves to ratify their state of marriage. The Court clerk was required to maintain a record 
book for this purpose and to receive 25 cents per entry for this service. In Section 6, Chapter 40 of the Act, it was 
misdemeanor if negroes did not record their marriage by Sept. 1, 1866. This section of the Act was amended by 
Section 1 , Chapter 70 (ratified March 1 867), to extend the time of recording these marriages to Jan. 1 , 1 868.

Calvin Cox Murdered, 1888 

Washington Progress, Washington, NC, Oct. 23, 1888. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

"On Saturday Oct. 12, the county candidates addressed the people at Venter's store or Calico. Sometime during the 
day previous the murder, Halsey BRANCH and Bud VENTERS two young men of that section, of whom we know 
nothing, got into a dispute with Calvin COX, a young man from Haddock's X Roads. At this time they did not 
come to blows until about night when BRANCH and VENTERS came upon COX while he was sitting down in 
conversation with a Mr. BUCK. BRANCH had a piece of plank and VENTERS a round stick. They proceeded to 
beat COX. He was badly beaten, his friends proceeded to take him home but before reaching their he died. He was 
examined by a doctor, who found a hole in COX'S skull that corresponded with a nail in the plank with which 
BRANCH beat him. It seems from the facts as they have been sent in to us from the section of the murder, that 
these parties might not have had any intention to kill COX. They are now in the Greenville jail. We learn from the 
Reflector that these parties were very much in liquor." 

John Butler, Legal Notes, 1812 

Taken from lawyers notes in the Mary B. Buck Collection, #83.1, East Carolina Manuscript Collection, J. Y. 
Joyner Library, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

"John BUTLER by his will, February 1799- bequeathed to his widow the remainder of his stock of Cattle & hogs, 
and household furniture during her life or widowhood— then to be equally divided between his two daughters 
Elizabeth and Mary — 

Answen The increase of the Stock lent to a person for a particular time belongs to such person absolutely — The 
Executor of BUTLER is entitled to receive from the widow only what remains of the original Stock— if any part of 
the original Stock has been Killed or sold by the widow she must make good its value, but she is not bound to 
make up any deficiency by death— The increase belongs to the widow and the Executor cannot intermeddle with 
that- 

Mary one of the legatees, died an infant and intestate— Elizabeth died after Mary leaving two illegitimate 
children— in 1810— Marys Share of the Stock &c. will be divided among the Mother & the brothers & Sisters— 
the two children of Elizabeth will take one Share (their mothers) between them— they also take their mothers 
legacy— Septr. 14. 1812 J STANLY"

Anthony Dawson, Slave Narrative 



The following interview was made in the mid 1930's in Tulsa, Oklahoma when Anthony Dawson was 105 years 
old. The interview was taken from the "Slave Narrative Collection", Library of Congress, Washington, DC. 
Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

"Run nigger, run, 
De Patteroll get you! 
Run nigger, run, 
De Patteroll come! 
Watch nigger, watch, 
De Patteroll trick you! 
Watch nigger, watch, 
He got a big gun!" 

Dat one of the songs de slaves all knowed, and de children down on de "twenty acres" used to sing it when dey 
playing in de moonlight round de cabins in de quarters. Sometime I wonder iffen de white folks didn't make dat 
song up so us niggers would keep in line. 

None of my master's boys tried to get away 'cepting two, and dey met up with evil, both of 'em. One of dem 
niggers was fetching a bull tongue from a piece of new ground way at de back of de plantation and bringing it to 
my pappy to get it sharpened. My pappy was de blacksmith. Dis boy got out in de big road to walk in de soft sand, 
and 'long come a wagon with a white overseer and five, six niggers going somewhere. Dey stopped and told dat 
boy to get in and ride. Dat was de last anybody seen him. 

Dat overseer and another one was cotched after awhile and showed up to be underground railroaders. Dey would 
take a bunch of niggers into town for some excuse and on de way just pick up a extra nigger and show him where to 
go to get on de "railroad system." When de runaway niggers got to de North dey had to go in de army, and dat boy 
from our place got killed. He was a good boy, but dey just talked him into it. Dem railroaders was honest, and dey 
didn't take no presents, but de patrollers was low white trash! We all knowed dat if a patroller just rode right by and 
didn't say nothing dat he was doing his honest job, but iffen he stopped his hoss and talked to a nigger he was after 
some kind of trade. 

Dat other black boy hoeing cotton way in de back of de field and de patrollers rid up and down de big road, 
saying nothing to nobody. De next day another white man was on de job, and 'long in de evening a man come by 
and axed de niggers about de fidshing and hunting! Dat black boy seen he was de same man what was riding de day 
before and he knowed it was an underground trick. But he didn't see all de trick, bless God! 

We found out afterwards dat he told his mammy about it. She worked at de Big House and she stole something 
for him to give dat low white trash I reckon, 'cause de next day he played sick along in de evening and de black 
overlooker- he was my uncle- sent him back to de quarters. He never did get back there, but when dey started de 
hunt dey found him about a mile away in de woods with his head shot off, and Old Master sold his mammy to a 
trader right away. He never whipped his grown niggers. 

Dat was de way it worked. Dey was all kinds of white folks just like dey is now. One man in Sesech clothes 
would shoot you if you tried to run away. Maybe another Sesech would help slip you out to the underground and 
say "God Bless you, you poor black devil," and some of dem dat was poor would help you if you could bring 'em 
somethin' you stole, like a silver dish or spoons or a couple of big hams. I couldn't blame them poor white folks, 
with the men in the War and the women and children hungry. The niggers didn't belong to them nohow, and they 
had to live somehow. But now and then they was a devil on earth, walking in the sight of God and spreading 
iniquity before him. He was de low-down Sesesh dat would take what a poor runaway nigger had to give for his 
chance to get away, and den give him 'structions dat would lead him right into de hands of de patro;;ers and get 
him caught or shot. Yes, dat's de way it was. Devils and good people walking in de road at de same time, and 
nobody could tell one from t'other. 

I remember about de trickery so good 'cause I was "grown and out" at that time. When I was a little boy I was a 
house boy, 'cause my mammy was the house woman, but when the War broke I already been sent to the fields and 
Mammy was still at de house. I was born on July 25, 1832. 1 know, 'cause Old Master keep de book on his slaves 
just like on his own family. I was born on the plantation, soon after my pappy and mammy was brought to it. I 
don't remember whether they was bought or come from my mistress' father. He was mighty rich and had several 



PCGQ November 2005 2 



hundred niggers. When she was married he gave her forty niggers. One of them was my pappy' s brother. His name 
was John, and he was my master's overlooker. We called a white man boss the "overseer," but a nigger was a 
overlooker. John could read and write and figger, and Old Master didn't have no white overseer. 

Master was a good man, and Old Mistress was de best woman in de world! Master's name was Levi 
DAWSON, and his plantation was eighteen miles east of Greenville, North Carolina. De plantation had more than 
five hundred acres and most was in cotton and tobacco. But we raised corn and oats, and lots of cattle and horses, 
and plenty of sheep for wool. It was a beautiful place, with all the fences around the Big House and along the front 
made out of barked poles, rider style, and all whitewashed. The Big House set back from the big road about a 
quarter of a mile. It was only one story, but it had lots of rooms. There was four rooms in a bunch on one side and 
four in a bunch on the other, with a wide hall in between. They was made of square adzed logs all weatherboarded 
on the outside and planked up and plastered on the inside. Then they was a long gallery clean across the front with 
big pillars made out of brick and plastered over. They called it the passage 'cause it didn't have no floor excepting 
bricks, and a buggy could drive right under it. Mostly it was used to set under talk and play cards and drink the 
best whiskey Old Master could buy. Back in behind the Big House was the kitchen, and the smokehouse in another 
place made of plank, and all was whitewashed and painted white all the time. 

Old Mistress was named Susie and she was born an ISLEY. She brought forty niggers from her pappy as a 
present, and Master Levi just had four or five, but he had got all his land from his pappy. She had the niggers and 
he had the land. That's the way it was, and that's the way it stayed! She never let him punish one of her niggers and 
he never asked her about buying oir selling land. Her pappy was richer than his pappy, and she was sure quality! 

My pappy's name was Anthony, and Mammy's name was Chanie. He was the blacksmith and fixed the 
wagons, but he couldn't read and figger like Uncle John. Mammy was the head house woman but didn't know any 
letters either. THey was both black like me. Old man ISLEY, where they come from, had lots of niggers, but I 
don't think they was off the boat. 

Master Levi had three sons and no daughters. The oldest son was Simeon. He was in the Sesech army. The 
other two boys was too young. I can't remember their names. They was a lot younger and I was grown and out 
before they got big. 

Old Master was a fine Christian but he like his juleps anyways. He let us niggers have preachings and prayers 
and would give us a parole to go ten or fifteen miles to a camp meeting and stay two or three days with nobody but 
Uncle John to stand for us. Mostly we had white preachers, but when we had a black preacher that was heaven. We 
didn't have no voodoo women nor conjure folks at our "twenty acres." We all knowed about the Word and the 
unseen Son of God and we didn't put no stock in conjure. 'Course we had luck charms and good and bad signs, but 
everybody got dem things, even nowadays. My boy had a white officer in the Big War and he tells me that man had 
a li'l old doll tied around his wrist on a gold chain. 

We used herbs and roots for common ailments, like sassafras and boneset and peach tree poultices and coon rot 
tea, but when a nigger got bad sick Old Master sent for a white doctor. I remember that old doctor. He lived in 
Greenville and he had to come eighteen miles in a buggy. When he give some nigger medicine he would be afraid 
the nigger was like lots of them that believed in conjure, and he would say, "If you don't take that medicine like I 
tell you and I have to come back here to see you I going to break your damn neck next time I come out here!" When 
it was bad weather sometimes the black boy sent after him had to carry a lantern to show him the way back. If that 
nigger on his mule got too far ahead so old doctor couldn't see de light he sure catch de devil from the old doctor 
and from Old Master, too, lessen he was one of Old Missy's house niggers, and then Old Master just grumble to 
satisfy the doctor. 

Down in the quarters we had the spinning house, where the old women card the wool and run the loom. They 
made double weave for the winter time, and all the white folks and slaves had good clothes and good food. Master 
made us all eat all we could hold. He would come to the smokehouse and look in and say "You niggers ain't 
cutting down that smoke side and that souse like you ought to! You made dat meat and you got to help eat it up!" 

Never no work on Sunday 'cepting the regular chores. The overlooker made everybody clean up and wash de 
children up, and after the praying we had games— antny over and marbles and "I Spy" and de likes of that. 
Sometimes de boys would go down in de woods and get a possum. I love possum and sweet 'taters, but de coon 
meat more delicate and de hair don't stink up de meat. 

I wasn't at the quarters much as a boy. I was at the Big House with my mammy, and I had to swing the fly 
brush over my old mistress when she was sewing or eating or taking her nap. Sometime I would keep the flies offen 
Old Master, and when I would get tired and let the brush slap his neck he would kick at me and cuss me, but he 
never did reach me. He had a way of keeping us little niggers scared to death and never hurting nobody. ' 

I was down in the field burning brush when I first heard the guns in the War. De fighting was de battle at 
Kmgston, North Carolina, and it lasted four days and nights. After while bunches of Sesesh come riding by hauling 
wounded people m wagons, and then pretty soon big bunches of Yankees come by, but dey didn't act like dey was 
trying very hard to catch up. Dey had de country in charge quite some time, and they had forages coming round all 



PCGQ November 2005 3 



the time. By dat time Old Master done buried his money and all de silver and de big clock, but the Yankees didn't 
appear to search out dat kind of stuff. All dey ask about was did anybody find a bottle of brandy! 

When de War ended up most all de niggers stay with Old Master and work on de shares, until de land get 
divided up and sold off and the young niggers get scattered to town. 

I never did have no truck with de Ku Kluckers, but I had to step mighty high to keep outen it! De sure 'nough 
Kluxes never did bother around us 'cause we minded our own business and never give no trouble. We wouldn't let 
no niggers come round our place talking about delegates and voting, and we just all stayed on the place. But dey 
was some low white trash and some devilish niggers made out like dey was Ku Klux ranging 'round de country 
stealing hosses and taking things. Old Master said dey wasn't sure 'nough, so I reckon he knowed who the regular 
ones was. 

These bunches that come around robbing got into our neighborhood and Old Master told me I better not have 
my old horse at the house, 'cause if I had him they would know nobody had been there stealing and it wouldn't do 
no good to hide anything 'cause they would tear up the place hunting what I had and maybe whip or kill me. "Your 
old hoss ain't no good, Tony, and you better kill him to make them think you already been raided on," Old Master 
told me, so I led him out and knocked him in the head with an ax, and then we hid all our grub and waited for 
Kluckers to come most any night, but they never did come. I borried a hoss to use in the day and took him back 
home every night for about a year. 

The niggers kept talking about being free, but they wasn't free then and they ain't now. Putting them free just 
like putting goat hair on a sheep. When it rain de goat come a-running and get in de shelter, 'cause his hair won't 
shed the rain and he get cold, but de sheep ain't got sense enough to get in the shelter but just stand out and let it 
ram on him all day. But the good Lord fix the sheep up with a woolly jacket that turn the water off, and he don't 
get cold, so he don't have to have no brains. De nigger during slavery was like de sheep. He couldn't take care of 
hisself but his master looked out for him, and he didn't have to use his brains. De master's protection was like de 
woolly coat. But de 'mancipation come and take off de woolly coat and leave de nigger with no protection and he 
cain't take care of hisself either. 

When de niggers was set free lots of them got mighty uppity, and everybody wanted to be a delegate to 
something or other. The Yankees told us we could go down and vote in the 'lections and our color was good 
enough to run for anything. Heaps of niggers believed them. You cain't fault them for that, 'cause they didn't have 
no better sense, but I knowed the black folks didn't have no business mixing in until they knowed more. It was a 
long time after the War before I went down to vote and everything quiet by that time, but I heard people talk about 
the fights at the schoolhouse when they had the first election. 

I just stayed on around the old place a long time, and then I got on another piece of ground and farmed not far 
from Greenville, until 1900. Then I moved to Hearn, Texas, and stayed with my son Ed until 1903 when we moved 
to Sapulpa in the Creek Nation. We come to Tulsa several years ago, and I been living with him ever since.

between Thomas LATHAM and Zachariah PINKET and that the signature to the Note did not appear to be the Hand 
writing of the said Zacharias PINKET Deed but that his eye sight was not very good and he had not His spectacles

was not his Hand

Supreme Court, Beddard vs. Hart, i860 

The following are notes taken from NC Supreme Court Case #83 19; Oliver Beddard admr. vs. Sindy Hart et all, 
Dec. 1 860, not reported in NC Reports. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 



March 1 1, 1859- Oliver BEDDARD, admr. of Noah TYSON vs. Sindy HART, Abner SMITH and wife Holland, 
John SMITH, Micajah T. HART and wife Sophia and their children, Josiah COX and wife Ann Henry S CLARK 
and Charles GREENE. 

Oliver Beddard states that Noah TYSON made his Will in 1837 and died shortly thereafter. His Will was proved in 
Pitt County Court. The executor named therein died soon after intestate and BEDDARD was appointed 
administrator de bonis. In January 1858 the Pitt County Court House burned along with Noah TYSON's Will. 

Noah TYSON's Will gives slaves Lewis and Judy to his wife Sarah for life and then to daughters Sindy 
TURNAGE, Elizabeth STOCKS, Holland SMITH, Sophia TYSON and Sally Ann TYSON. The widow Sarah 
TYSON possessed the slaves until her death in 1857. After the death of her father, Sindy TURNAGE married 
Hewell HART, who died before 1857 and she survives him. Elizabeth STOCKS married Oliver BEDDARD and 
has children. Holland TYSON, wife of Abner SMITH, lives in South Carolina and has one child, John SMITH 
Sophia TYSON married Micajah T. HART and moved to Texas and has several children whose names are 
unknown. Sally Ann TYSON married Josiah COX and has children. 

The slaves Lewis and Judy remained in possession of the widow Sarah TYSON during her life and they had 
children: Ned, John, Fanny, Henry, Warren, Violette and one more name unknown. All were in possession of 
Oliver BEDDARD. 

Oliver BEDDARD was ready to give the slaves to the persons entitled. Under the Will all claimed that their titles 
were absolute, but that was denied by the children of the daughters. 
Henry S. CLARKE claimed share as assignee of estate of Sophia HART. 
Charles GREENE claimed share as assignee of estate of Holland SMITH. 

Oliver BEDDARD the administrator was doubtful how to act and prayed advise from the NC Supreme Court. 

w^xt 1 860 Pitt Comity CoUrt ' BEDDARD was told to deliver the slaves and children to the daughters of Noah 
I YSON, as tenants in common. The administrator was to sell the wider part of the estate and divide the proceeds 
among the daughters. The administrator was to pay for all costs of proceedings. The Pitt County Court of Equity 
was to keep an account of the heirs and profits.

Cohabitation Records, 1 866 

Part 6 

(continued from previous issue) 

In the March 1866 session of the North Carolina General Assembly, an Act was passed concerning negroes and 
persons of color. Justices of the Peace were to collect and record in the County Clerk's office, a record of the 
cohabitation of former slaves to ratify their state of marriage. The Court clerk was required to maintain a record 
book for this purpose and to receive 25 cents per entry for this service. In Section 6, Chapter 40 of the Act, it was 
misdemeanor if negroes did not record their marriage by Sept. 1, 1866. This section of the Act was amended by 
Section 1, Chapter 70 (ratified March 1867), to extend the time of recording these marriages to Jan. 1, 1868.

Robert, son of J. T. Williams Dead 

Eastern Reflector, Greenville, NC, Wed., Aug. 29, 1883 

Died in this place, on Friday, Robert, infant son of J. T. and Eliza WILLIAMS. 

Mrs. W. G. Lang Died

The wife of Mr. W. G. LANG, of Farmville, died on last Friday. 

Death of Mr. T. H. Fleming 

Daily Reflector, Greenville, NC, Tues., July 9, 1907 

Quinerly, N. C, July 8th 1807 There is a spirit of gloom recently cast over our community by the death of one 

of our best men. On Friday evening, July 15th, the spirit of Mr. T. Heber FLEMING took its flight after an illness 
of nearly four weeks. The death of Mr. FLEMING is especially sad as he and his little girl were both taken down 
about the same time with typhoid fever, and both have been nursed most of the same time in the same room, until 
Mr. FLEMING became so very low, then the little girl was removed to another room. It was seen for some time 
that it was a battle between death, and the nurse and we had all hoped the nurse would be victorious, but fate it 
seems had decreed otherwise and at exactly 9 o'clock his life passed out as gently as the falling leaves of autumn 
tide. Mr. FLEMING'S death removes from our midst one of our leading men in everything which goes to make for 
material progress. In the Sunday school, the church, and as a citizen of the community, he was always ready to 
assist and take part in any work that would in any way rebound to the good of the community. He came to our 
neighborhood about 15 years ago and soon after purchased the Spencer WOOTEN place where he has since built a 
nice home and was just entering upon that period of man's life when he need not devote all his time to the pursuits 
of worldly things, but may take a day when he will to enjoy with his friends or family. The deceased was about 40 
years old and leaves a wife and four children. The little girl has not been considered dangerously sick at any time, 
and we hope for her speedy recovery. To his family we extend our deepest sympathy, their loss is irreparable. 

Funeral for William F. Evans

Washington, D. C, and was employed by the U. S. Internal Revenue Department. In 1941 he was transfered to 
New York and had been attorney for the Bureau of Internal Revenue in New York. He was a former member of the 
Jarvis Memorial Methodist Church and was an Odd-fellow. He was married to the former Eva ALLEN of 
Greenville in March 1904. Surviving are his wife; two sons, Robert H. EVANS of New York and W. F. EVANS 
Jr., of Wilmington; a grandchild; a great grandchild; a brother, James L. EVANS of Greenville; and two sisters

Dr. F. C. James Broke Back 

Eastern Reflector, Greenville, NC, Wed., April 19, 1882 

On last Tuesday Dr. F. C. JAMES, of Bethel, was having an old shelter taken down, preparatory to making some 
improvements on his premises. In attempting to remove some things from under the shelter it fell on him, breaking 
his back in two places. A barrel was under the shelter at the time it fell, and this alone kept the Doctor from being 
instantly killed. We are glad to learn that his injuries are not considered fatal and that there is hope of his recovery. 

J. R. Davenport Struck W. G. Mizell With an Axe 

Eastern Reflector, Greenville, NC, Wed., Aug. 29, 1883 

We learn that Messers J. R. DAVENPORT and W. G. MIZELL, of Pactolus, got into a dispute at the store of the 
former on Monday evening of last week, which culminated in Mr. DAVENPORT striking Mr. MIZELL on the head 
with an axe, inflicting a very dangerous wound. Mr. DAVENPORT tried to avoid a fight with Mr. MIZELL and 
closed his store and went home in order to get out of his way, but was followed to his door and the blow was 
struck in his yard. Both gentlemen are well connected and we regret very much to hear of the difficulty between 
them.
